Grab em’ offline, or continue workin’ your couch groove – either way, these 7 picks are sure to teach you a thing or two.

Hip Hop Evolution: Series 1

“Hip-Hop today is a global culture that has changed music, dance, fashion, language—and even politics. But where did this worldwide cultural movement begin?”

“We trace hip-hop back to its humble beginnings when the kids of the Bronx crammed into house parties, rec rooms, and public parks to hear music like they’d never heard it before. “

Featuring: Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash, Run – D.M.C, Def Jam, Ice-T, N.W.A, Dr. Dre

The Art of Organized Noise

“The career highs and lows of the musicians and producers responsible for cultivating the Dirty South music movement.”

Featuring: TLC, Outkast, Goodie Mob

Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child

“This biographical documentary sets out to tell rock pioneer Jimi Hendrix’s story in his own words, by combining the musician’s private writings and recorded interviews. It also delves into the Hendrix family archive, working in such elements as the artist’s personal sketches, postcards that he wrote to his father, and more.”

Featuring: Jimi Hendrix (duh), Band of Gypsys, The Jimi Hendrix Experience

20,000 Days on Earth

“Drama and reality combine in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon, Nick Cave. With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit”

Featuring: Nick Cave, Kylie Minogue

Fresh Dressed

“Fresh Dressed is a fascinating chronicle of hip-hop, urban fashion, and the hustle that brought oversized pants and graffiti-drenched jackets from Orchard Street to high fashion’s catwalks and Middle America shopping malls. Director Sacha Jenkins’ music-drenched history draws from a rich mix of archival materials and in-depth interviews with rappers, designers, and other industry insiders.”

Featuring: Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Nas, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz

Stretch & Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives

“During the 1990s, Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun, as well as an unknown Jay Z, Eminem, and the Fugees. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their show exceed 300 million. The late-night program had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population as well. All would loyally tune in for the offbeat humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever.”

Featuring: DJ Premier, DMX, Common

Sample This

“A documentary that reveals how a forgotten record by the Incredible Bongo Band helped cement the foundation of hip hop when DJ Herc extended its percussion by playing them back to back, creating an anthem on the streets of the Bronx.”

Featuring: DJ Herc, Incredible Bongo Band
